Olhão reinforces electric vehicle charging network

With an additional 32 charging points, the Municipality of Olhão has “one of the largest networks of electric charging points per capita in the country”.

The vice-president of the Municipality, Ricardo Calé, announced last week, on the opening day of European Mobility Week, that Olhão had installed an additional 32 electric vehicle charging points.

In addition to the existing charging points, this new equipment is part of the Municipality’s strategy to facilitatetechnological transition and provide conditions for those who choose this environmentally friendly transport alternative.

“At the moment, we already have one of the country’s largest networks of electric charging points per capita, but our objective is to double this number by July of next year,” he added.

Aware that the areas where villas predominate have better conditions to implement their own charging units, the Municipality’s strategy was to favour large housing clusters in the Municipality, such as areas where buildings predominate, thus improving access to this service.
